Stephen Costanza studied music theory and composition at Syracuse University before attending the Philadelphia College of Art to pursue a career in the visual arts. He worked as both a graphic designer and illustrator in a career that has encompassed silk screening, graphic design, and book illustration. Stephen’s background in music led him to write and illustrate the picture books Mozart Finds a Melody and Vivaldi and The Invisible Orchestra, both from Henry Holt & Co. Stephen’s illustrations have appeared in magazines, newspapers, advertising, and textbooks, from The American Prospect and Cricket to brochures for the Boston Ballet, Four Seasons Hotel, and Boston Lyric Opera. Five of his paintings were exhibited at the 2000 Children’s Book Fair in Bologna. He lives in North Haven, Maine.
